Loss Prevention Certification: Recently Certified in February 2016

Professional excellence requires dedication and responsibility, and is something that the best continuously strive to achieve. In order to maximize potential, it is therefore essential that professional development is seen as an ongoing process. We should always be looking for ways to improve our skills, abilities, and base of knowledge as a means to maximize performance. Loss prevention certification is a means of establishing and validating that standard of excellence.

“The LPCertified (LPC) course work is intense, very well put together, and will expand your current LP/AP knowledge. It is a great certification to have and trust me when I say that people in our field will know your dedication and commitment to your personal development after gaining this certification. However, do not underestimate this coursework and exam as it is quite difficult. If it was easy, then everyone in our field would have it!”

“The curriculum developed for the LPC certification is unmatched in the industry in my opinion; being intensely thorough from many perspectives. It’s a comprehensive look at loss prevention from all business areas; a very unique examination for any loss prevention professional. I absolutely value the Certification as it demonstrates my career/expertise investment, my credibility and reputation to prospective clients. My industry peers tend to be very focused on continuing development and attributes. It’s a character I pride myself on and honor in others.”

Loss prevention certification is an investment that we make in ourselves. It is not simply a commitment to higher learning, but also a dedication to reach a higher standard. Each of these individuals is helping to raise the bar for the profession; and has earned both their designation and respect of the loss prevention community.

The retail industry is extremely competitive, and loss prevention has become an integral component of a successful retail model. In order to remain successful our professional competencies must include flexibility, strong problem-solving and decision making skills, a superior knowledge base, and an ability to effectively apply our knowledge and experience to the diverse situations that we face on a day-to-day basis.

It is our responsibility to manage the process; driven by individual learning experiences and carrying a personal signature for success.
